Home from the north woods

Back from the north woods of Wisconsin and happy to be up to my elbows in paint again. Finished drawing Periodical Blues yesterday; blue drapery and background, with The New Yorker and Art in America magazines beside a globe that's next to a huge Webster's dictionary, a Magic 8-ball and a crystal ball. Subscription cards are falling, similar to the falling tarot cards in Publishing's Bleak House.
Also did a life-size drawing of a magnolia on a 10x10" canvas. I mixed petal colors (about 20 variations on 'white', plus green for the leaves) all morning. I'm got the neutrals of the vague drapery background blocked in.
